a tin and a bottlecap


well it does say in my heading that this is about my happenings and mishappenings doesn't it?

This is one of the latter ones.I tried to stencil " play" with the Tim Holtz thingemies and the ink got under the stencil, trying to improve the situation only made it worse. I was too impatient to wait for the Distress stickles to dry so had to do that again only to find most of it has come off again. So I rest my case( tin) which was for the Objet D'art challenge , I included a bottlecap so it suits the Big Adventure challenge as well.. (cheat ,cheat) the saturdayworkout challenge this week is also to alter a tin

That's great - I find that the ink 'leaks' under the masks sometimes. But that's what makes it original - and art.

Linda it used to have a pen set in it I think, my son flung it at me with the words "I bet you'll fish this out of the bin if I throw it in " He knows me and my habits.
